Shuttle Prima SP45H7 Intel Barebones System Review

I’m sure a lot of you have heard of Shuttle, I first experienced a Shuttle system when I was building computers for a few friends for them to take to school. If you are unfamiliar with Shuttle they make small form factor “cube” systems that perform just as well as a desktop system. They offer barebones systems where you can go out and purchase the additional parts yourself or you can customize the system at Shuttle’s website and they will build it for you. Today we are going to be taking a look at the Prima SP45H7 barebones system, which is based off the Intel P45 chipset.

The SP45H& barebones system comes in a nice Shuttle box that does have a handle on the top so if you want to take your system to a LAN party you can easily put it back in the box and carry it with you. On the side there is sticker that lets us know what model we received.

Opening up the box the system inside is nicely protected with large pieces of Styrofoam and cloth. Once we get everything out of the box we have the Shuttle system, box of accessories, power cable, and an installation guide.
